Yes, absolutely you can do that. There is no legal requirement for you to reside in the State of Missouri to help your dad set up either a revocable living trust or a will. You can help him from Florida and have Missouri law be the applicable law for either or both. If you want to avoid the process of probate, since you live in another state, I would suggest the living trust. That way the trust document will control his assets and you can avoid the hassle of probate. :)
